Event description

Description

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by how much you spend? or throw away? Does the frenetic pace of our consumer lifestyle drain you of joy and energy? Many of us are addicted to shopping, phones, TV, and shorts bursts of pleasure or instant gratification that keep us from being present in our lives and following our true bliss. Both consumer highs and consumer products are designed to be short lived, keeping us on the treadmill of spending at the expense of the planet.

Consumerism creates problems in order to sell us solutions and we seem to be hooked. It was sold to us a means of increasing our leisure time yet we feel more stressed out and thinly spread than ever. Its time we learned how to stop.

10am - Consumerism seminar and discussion with Katherine Beaumont

When Neitzche said “God is dead” he meant that we now worship progress, technology, consumerism and the power of the profit motive. In the wake of 9/11, George W Bush famously offered “go shopping” as a solution. Individuality feeds the free market system but how free are we? And where do we go for comfort and sanctuary when faced with suffering or our own mortality. How can we bring back compassion, community and hope for future generations?

11.30am - Go with your gut - workshop on conscious eating with Suzee Tylee

Suzie talks about sourcing and providence. It is natures’ intention to sustain you and keep you well. Suzie will elaborate on the goodness of natural, well sourced foods and compare them to what we buy as a result of clever advertising. Suzee will also cover, mindful, seasonal eating and prepping and the benefits of fasting.

1pm Wholesome lunch cooked with love by Suzee 2pm

Walking and “being” in nature meditation with Katherine

Escape the pinging and dinging and the pressures to purchase. You are so much more than what you own, wear, or have. Walk around nature in the circe of your own being and nothing more and allow it to heal you.

2.30pm - Cleansing yoga flow to create balance with Rebecca Ellis

To exist in a purist yogic state amidst the seductions of modern living is difficult. There are too many distractions, temptations, and gadgets that will take you out of the yogic “now” and transport you into the consumerist-confused chaos of the times. Allow Rebecca to transport you to the “now” for 90 blissful minutes and inspire you to create more balance in your hectic life.

4pm - Connect with animals and nature to find authentic bliss with Katherine

How many times have you referred your happiness to some future time, when you have a car, a wedding, a bigger house etc etc. Animals are not stuck in the past or the future; they are very present. As a result of this they have strong, coherent and regulated central nervous system which, when synced with ours, can bring us into greater coherence. They help us to understand that the present moment is all we have… otherwise life will pass you by.
